I love the ballet and Swan Lake has always been one of my very favouritesThe majesty of traditional Russian ballet, St Petersburg Ballet Theatre, returns to South Africa in 2020 presenting Tchaikovsky’s magnificent classical ballet, Swan Lake for one week only at the Artscape Opera House, Cape Town, from Wednesday 15 April and for one week only at the Teatro at Montecasino, Johannesburg, from Wednesday 22 April.
Following sold out seasons in London, Paris and Sydney, St Petersburg Ballet Theatre brings its grand, full-length production of the immortal Swan Lake to South Africa’s most prestigious theatres. The unmissable and stirring ballet will be accompanied by the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra and Johannesburg Festival Orchestra.
In its 25th anniversary year, St Petersburg Ballet Theatre continues to champion the classical masterpieces with its graceful Vaganova trained company of dancers and breathtaking scenery and costumes.
Swan Lake tells the classic love story of Prince Siegfried and the Swan Princess Odette torn apart by the villainous sorcerer Rothbart in a story where true love conquers all.
